The hotel is right on the beach and the views are gorgeous! This is a great place to stay, clean roomy and comfy. I would recommend it for families...

The room came with one parking spot, but my daughter was traveling with me, so we needed an additional space. The motel manager told us that after dinner when...

Been coming to the Commander for many years! Tried another when they had no room and realized we have to plan earlier if we want a great vacation! We will NEVER make that mistake again! Wonderful staff, too!

My family has been coming to this hotel since the 70s. I have only been coming since 2005. The staff are professional and helpful. I am currently staying at the hotel and we had a severe thunderstorm come through. The staff was helpful and though there was some damage, the maintenance staff had it repaired before most people even noticed....

My friend and I stayed here in July 2015 and are booked again for this July. We don't even look at any of the other places in Wildwood Crest because this place is the best and has everything we need. It's clean, the people are great and the location can't be beat. Your room is literally steps to the beach!...
